KNOCKED OUT: Antifa Tries To Mess With Trump Supporters In Portland, Embarrass Themselves

You just got knocked out

Published

Portland, Oregon is the alt-left’s heaven. There’s nowhere else in the world that wearing a Bernie Sanders T-shirt has a higher likelihood of resulting in a discount on your daily soy-latte. So to say that they hate President Donald Trump, and anyone who supports him is an understatement.

That’s why when conservative speaker Joey Gibson chose to launch his “Patriot Prayer” protests in recent years, he faced intense opposition. Gibson isn’t someone with highly contentious political opinions most places, but in the liberal safespace of Portland, his message of “God and Freedom” is considered coded Nazi language (Antifa literally thinks this).

Even Portland’s Mayor, Ted Wheeler has used his position of power to try to stop him. But he wasn’t successful in that, or pretty much anything else in life besides becoming Portland’s Mayor.

Joey Gibson’s now-famous Patriot Prayer events have now become a controversial staple in Portland, and other liberal cities in the Northwest. The most recent protest occurred Saturday, and it was seen by many as the most violent event yet, with Antifa coming out in force, throwing explosives, and violently assaulting everyone in sight.

This event became so violent that for the first time, the city of Portland pulled the permit held by Gibson. The permit being pulled was a direct response to the violent actions of Antifa protesters.

But in the face of Antifa violence, those on Joey Gibson’s side held their ground, fighting back to defend themselves. In the end, Antifa was left embarrassed, while police escorted Gibson and his supporters out of the area, which was largely beneficial for the Antifa protesters who had faced an embarrassing defeat.

Perhaps the best video to come from the incident is a man on Joey Gibson’s side, who identifies as a Proud Boy, knocking out a protester who attempted to attack him with a metal baton.

The man, wearing a black and yellow Fred Perry polo shirt, which has become the now-famous uniform of the Proud Boys, forced his attacker to the ground with one punch. After being knocked out, the Antifa supporter had to be carried away by a group of his fellow protesters.

Big League Politics reached out to Gavin McInnes, who founded the Proud Boys, whose only comment was “F#&k around and find out,” stating that Antifa “found out.”

There were other moments of violence, which resulted in multiple ambulances being sent to the scene. But all of the initiated violence appeared to come from Antifa, with Joey Gibson’s side seeming to only act in defense. Watching the footage made one thing clear, Joey Gibson’s side clearly won the battle presented in front of them.

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
